Fables: The Last Castle
Because everyone needs to be exposed to some James Jean every now and again, here's his cover to the Fables one-shot: The Last Castle. That's Red at the top (note: she's actually riding for once) and Boy Blue (with his horn, 'natch) at the bottom.
Jean actually recently announced that he's going to be leaving Fables soon, and I for one will be sad to see him go, as his work on the series has been phenomenal all the way through and even helped earned him six of his impressive seven Eisner awards.
Incidentally, Fables itself has picked up many more Eisners since the point that the above comic was published* and now has many more, including three (so far) in the "Best Serialised Story" category. I really cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone with an interest in either fairytales or just astonishingly well told serialised stories.
*Note to self: upload a decent text-less version of the above image when I find one.
